The brief was to design a house on 1000 sq. yard plot for large typical Indian Joint family of two brother’s family each with grown up son. The house was to be designed in such a way that both the brothers ‘family gets almost equal area in terms of Size and Value.
Also a provision for future distribution amongst two sons was to be considered in design. The result was to design a single detach house which could accommodate two close families and then each part could again be divided into two separate units still keeping the character of the house as one.
The client from traditional background wanted to incorporate ancient Indian science of architecture “Vastu Shastra” as most important priority. The design came out to be a non-intrusive, minimalist approach, allowing maximum Indirect light from east and north. The house has three floors along with massive well lit open basement level and two separate flats on top floor. The ground and First floor are identical.
All the levels are connected with a triple height space which also brings northern light. The interiors are designed in clean , natural and hardwearing materials. The floors are of white marble and Indian stone.
The exteriors are on natural stone and slate and white render with some other selected element finishes.
